Afstudeeropdrachten Positieve Psychologie en Technologie (PPT)


Please scroll for master thesis assignments


These assignments are only suitable for bachelor theses

On thiswebsite you will find the list of available bachelor thesis assignments offered by the specialization Positive Psychology and Technology.

Pay attention:

With the assignments, the name of the supervisor is given for information. It is not the intention that you contact the supervisor and make appointments outside the procedure. Keep in mind that an interview can be part of the procedure for an external assignment. So, an external client can have a voice in assigning an assignment to the student.


If you choose an assignment in the Positive Psychology and Technology (PPT) track:

Step 1: Make a top five of your options for assignments. From Thursday 17th of January to Tuesday 22nd of January 2019 you can fill in the form (link below) and specify five options. You can also upload your short motivation letter here if it has been requested for an assignment. 

Note: Students who have permission from the coordinator to do their own thesis assignment still have to register. In this case, please select ‘own assignment’ as first option.

Step 2: At the end of January 2019 you will receive an e-mail about the assignment you can start with. We will do our utmost best to take into account your five selected options when allocating assignments. However, we cannot guarantee that you will receive the assignment of your choice due to the large number of PPT graduates.

Step 3: After you have been informed by the coordinator about the assignment you can start with (before February 4), you can contact the supervising lecturer of the assignment to make an appointment.

Please note: Bachelor assignments on the website are provisional until January 17 and can be removed or altered. From 16 January onwards, the list of assignments will be definitive.
